Members of a tenpin bowling league held their annual fundraising event for Canning Town charity, Ambition, Aspire, Achieve.
Last Sunday, players in the Sunday Trios League, along with their friends and families, began their new season with a tournament to raise money for the charity.
The event, at Rollerbowl at the City Pavilion in Romford, raised more than £450.
From this year, the tournament is being named after bowler Fred Williams, who died last season. The tournament supported AAA’s work with disabled and disadvantaged young people with scratch and handicap bowling matches. Since opening 25 years ago, the league has raised more than £10,500 for charities.
The male scratch tournament was won by Neil Emmons, with Paul Mitchell taking second place and Colin Grainger third. The female was won by Lisa Sherer, followed by Kirsty Mitchell and Leone Murtagh.
The male handicap competition was won by James Graham-Kitson, while Nicky Sherer took gold in the female equivalent.
